New to the scene, Under the Weather will be releasing their debut EP, Deserters, on Nov. 24. Today, the band has partnered with HM to premiere the first single from that release, “Sartoris.” The Georgia-based quartet plans to make Deserters available for free on Bandcamp. HM spoke with vocalist Walker Whited about the new single:

“Over the past four years of playing music together, our sound has changed significantly with every release that we’ve had. ‘Sartoris’ combines crunchy verses, a soaring chorus and punchy interludes that meld into a tale of new beginnings, rite of passage and seeing evil as it is, without a lens.”

If you dig the sound, you can check them out on Facebook or Bandcamp.

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
